Workshop Summary
Grammar Boot Camp, a combination of workshop and online lessons,
1) Supports classroom grammar instruction through Alice Nine’s videos for blended instruction and the creation of a student interactive notebook
2) Builds teacher capacity in both personal knowledge of English grammar and professional instructional skills for teaching grammar

During the Workshop,
Alice Nine shares a series of lessons, based on 10 essential questions:

1) How does a writer use knowledge of the parts of speech to write clearly, powerfully, creatively?
2) How an knowledge of sentence structure improve my writing / reading?
3) What is a sentence?
4) How can noticing language and its conventions help me become a better writer / reader?
5) How does having a command of English morphology and grammar help me become a better reader?
6) How does having a knowledge of grammatical elements help me construct a better writing piece?
7) How does a good writer make revising and editing decisions?
8) How does correct use of mechanics, words, and grammar improve the clarity of writing?
9) How does noticing and understanding author’s craft help me become a better writer / reader?
10) How do writers leverage their writing through grammatical structures, word usage, and conventions?

During the online Lessons for blended instruction,
Routines, and anchor lessons with anchor charts build concepts with clear, concise, easy explanations and definitions. Mentor texts model with accurate examples. Students create an interactive grammar notebook, a personal resource book. Full-color graphics and explicit notebook building is part of the lessons in Alice Nine’s online Grammar Boot Camps. Based on scientific research & best practices these grammar lessons align with the new ELAR TEKS and the ELPS and support gains in STAAR Writing. Read more and view sample lessons at
